Tram in card

My first thread, hope it is ok. Started to scratch build a Blackpool Tram in 1/24th scale, a lot more difficult than it looks, cutting the card is a real pain especially the windows to get the last little bit out of the corners. I have a pic of the seats being drawn, in the background are some parts awaiting a coat of varnish. Hope to post more as I progress. Owen

I guess these are much simpler than the one you're scratch building, but they may be helpful in the design process. Although if you are a Tram fan I expect you have seen them before.
